years ago. also speaking tonight, first lady michelle obama. her job, reach out to women voters of both parties. cnn's edlavendera has a closer look. but, first, dana bash, what are the main priorities that democrats will be pushing tonight? >> reporter: well, democratic officials say the main priority is to remind people that this just isn't just about whether or not they should fire or hire again president obama. it's that it's going to be a choice. and this is really if you talk to any strategist of any party kind of the way you run an incumbent's re-election campaign. that it is a choice between the president and mitt romney. so they'll try to what they say is crystallize that choice between the two men. and they're also going to try to emphasize the fact that as president obama has been doing for months that they believe that the democratic party is the party for the middle class. and also talk about, they say, the accomplishments that they feel that the president hasn't gotten enough credit for, bailing out the auto industry. they believe the health care bill. they'll talk about t
the country. i thought this was a very well orchestrated convention with michelle obama giving us more insight into barack obama the man. followed by bill clinton talking about the obama record on the economy and trying to bring people together. and then teeing it up for president obama to talk about what's next. and i thought that was very powerful. >> but you know, mo, the first lady did do a great job in her speech. bill clinton did an amazing job as well. the criticism of the president whilhe set certain goals and said this is how many js i want to create, this is what wae concerned,he environment is concerned, he didn't go into specifics and lay out how he's going to achieve those goals, mo. thatas folks. and th were disappointed he didn't use that venue to do it. >> well, look, ts speech was really the first stop in the general election campaign. and this -- i don't believe -- i know there's a lot of people wondering what kind of bounce either side is going to get. i don't believe there is going to be much bounce for either side because i believe this is going to be a continuous conversa
. michelle obama is set to appear on dr. oz's daytime talk show today to talk about healthy exercise and eating on the campaign trail. the first lady reportedly stands up on the set and teaches dr. oz how to do the dougie. >> bill: oh, my god. that is just an internet sensation. >> yeah. >> bill: thank you, dan. yes indeed just getting off of politics a tad this morning here to start the day. we always think about the big stories and the stories that people are talking about or going to be talking about today and you are going to be talking about today. it is any front page of the "washington post" this morning, and the headline is "a breastfeeding quiz." it is okay to best feed in class when you are a teacher in front of your class? that's the question. it's a young professor after american university here in washington, d.c. who did this, and a lot of people raising the question was this over the line? and i ask you that question. 866-55-press, but first let's just settle back and find out the facts. okay. here it is. a young professor, her name is adrian pine, s
. i think the president and his family have already -- there they go. president obama and michelle obama boarding the plane taking off for portsmouth, new hampshire where of course president obama will hit the campaign trail. that is where dan lothian is already waiting for the president to arrive. so i'm sure the white house has already put out a statement on this jobs report. what's it saying? >> this is not the kind of numbers that would really put wind in the sails of the president as he bounces out of the democratic national convention. i've heard from two officials who tell me the president will in fact address the jobs numbers during his first stop here post the dnc convention here in new hampshire. so he will be addressing those job numbers. we'll be listening for what he has to say. we heard from the president's economic adviser who said in a statement in part, quote, while there is more work, there remains to be done, today's employment report provides further evidence that the u.s. economy is continuing to recover from the worst downturn since the great depression going
and our personnel is protected. >> in the midst of all of this michele, as you well know, there is an election going on and governor romney says that the obama administration is not being tough enough. is he right? >> look, i think that in this specific instance of these demonstrations, and what has happened in libya, i think that the response of the obama administration has been appropriate. if we step back though and look at a broader frame of u.s. policy in the middle east and indeed u.s. foreign policy in the world, i think that there's an argument to be made that the united states has not taken the leadership role it really should, that there is very widespread disappointment in the middle east for example that the united states is not doing more regarding syria, that the united states hasn't done as much as people hoped to help the nations in democracies in tunisia, and libya and so there is a way in which what governor romney said is justified. >> thank you, michele dunne, from the carnegie endowment for peace. we appreciate your perspective. >>> when newsroom cont
in chief. ladies and gentlemen, president barack obama. >> secretary panetta, general dempsey, members of our armed services and, most importantly, to the families, survivors and loved ones of those we lost, michelle and i are humbled to join you again on this solemn anniversary. today we remember a day that began like so many others, arrive at school and commutes to work, early flights and familiar routines, quick hugs, and quiet moments. it was a day like this one. a clear, blue sky, but a sky that would soon be filled with clouds of smoke, and prayers of a nation shaken to its core. even now, all these years later, it is easy for those of us who lived through that day to close our eyes and to find ourselves back there. and back here. back when grief crashed over us like an awful wave, when americans everywhere held each other tight, seeking the reassurance that the world we knew wasn't crumbling under our feet. eleven times we have marked another september 11th come and gone. eleven times we have paused in remembrance and reflection, in unity, and in purpose. this is never an easy d
